Restructuring and redundancy is a common part of the business landscape, particularly in uncertain times. Whilst no employer enjoys making these tough decisions, they are often unavoidable and it is important that these processes are undertaken in a manner than minimises the risk to your business.
Under the Employment Relations Act 2000, there are specific requirements to fulfil when undertaking a change process such as a restructure, particularly when it results in the disestablishment or redundancy of a role. Getting this process wrong can result in a costly Personal Grievance and potential damage to your brand.
